Being true believers in artistic and dynamic quality, Salvage brings a colorful pallet of songs to the table that appeal to wide variety of music fans. Many find the ‘Salvage sound’ to be very refreshing while remaining reminiscent of gritty Hard Rock heard in the 80’s with a pinch of Punk here, and a splash of Metal there. One is all but certain to hear a powerful rhythm section with chunky guitars and bass, commanding drums, articulate lead guitar, and versatile vocals. This sound is achieved largely in part due to various influences such as, Guns N’ Roses, The Misfits, Megadeth, Alkaline Trio, Velvet Revolver, and Killswitch Engage. The band’s creative inspiration also stems from intricate and moving piano driven songs, contributing a welcomed melodic element to the music. Salvage, a Milwaukee-based four piece band, has carried their sound into an emerging music scene while establishing themselves as solid musicians with a strong fan base.

Lyrics

Done With You

Written By: Salvage

Board up the doors now
Lock your kids inside
Flush out the evil
With your brainwashed genocide

And all your preachin’ hypocrisy
Does nobody no good
And I will not be a sell out
And I’ll never be misunderstood
No

You rant and rave now
You say you slave for me
But who’s to blame now
When you’ve thrown away the key

And all this pain and this poison
Has got me on my knees
I’m trapped in my own asylum
Oh won’t you set me free

Chorus
Someday I’m a gonna leave you
My way that’s the way it will be
Somehow I’ll find my own way
I’m done I’m done I’m done

No more after all we’ve done for you
One day you will finally see the truth
One way ticket to the fast lane
I’m done I’m done I’m done
And I’m done with you

Break down the doors now
Nobody’s there
Up and gone without a trace
Vanished in thin air

And I’ve been back on this wagon too many times before
And all the time in this prison, I’ve only gotten much worse

Chorus
Someday I’m a gonna leave you
My way that’s the way it will be
Somehow I’ll find my own way
I’m done I’m done I’m done
No more after all we’ve done for you
One day you will finally see the truth
One way ticket to the fast lane
I’m done I’m done I’m done
And I’m done with you

Someday I’m a gonna leave you
My way that’s the way it will be
Somehow I’ll find my own way
I’m done I’m done I’m done

No more after all we’ve done for you
One day you will finally see the truth
One way ticket to the fast lane
I’m done I’m done I’m done
And I’m done with you

I’m done with you

Facade

Written By: Salvage

Set the ball into motion as you walk out the door
Wake up early try to find what you’re lookin’ for
You’re unaware that you’re floatin’ free with no care
But then you wake up and it hits you that you’re already there

Little ditty such a pitty makes you pray to the Lord
Try to wine her try to dine her but she’s already bored
You never know when it’s comin’ down to the end
Push the needle pull the thread but you’re already dead

Midnight comes and the world’s all in tune
Light the candle, turn your frown upside down
Flyin’ free with no animosity
Through the dark it finds you, and the smoke it binds you

Chorus
Here it comes again you’re gonna hit it hit it
Run until the end you’re gonna get it get it
Never stop to turn around, you fall to the ground
For your soul it screams

Through the clearing comes a vision of a snake on the loose
Your body’s weary as he fits your head for your noose
Take a breath as it closes down on your throat
You know you need it try to beat it as you start to choke

Dim the lights sing your last serenade
Kiss the sky before you’re locked in the cage
A single tear sings an undying song
Fell the sun get cold now, and the sky grows old now

Chorus
Here it comes again you’re gonna hit it hit it
Run until the end you’re gonna get it get it
Never stop to turn around, you fall to the ground
For your soul it screams

Bridge
Ooh here it comes
Ooh right down your throat
Set the pain aside
In whom do you confide

Midnight comes and the world’s all in tune
Light the candle, turn your frown upside down
Flyin’ free with no animosity
Through the dark it finds you, and the smoke it binds you

Chorus
Here it comes again you’re gonna hit it hit it
Run until the end you’re gonna get it get it
Never stop to turn around, you fall to the ground
For your soul it screams

Perfect World

Written By: Salvage

Fight back the tears within
As they see the lights begin to dim
What happened to this perfect world
Now some are mad and don’t belong
Some are sad but are too far gone
Live it up in this fast paced paradise

All in all we are just strangers in this land
We try to make it anyway we can

What happened to the one he gave
Now this world is all man made
And it’s driven by ignorance and want

And in that life it’s said that only doom awaits
And the strong will be at Heaven’s gate

Chorus
Open your eyes baby
Open your mind
Tear down the walls of this world

Now they say that we are free
And thank God for democracy
But who can judge what is right from wrong anymore

All in all we’re clouded by the world’s self-centered views
We are all lost and all abused

And in this perfect world
This fast track and righteous world we’ve found
Underground

But in time, we will see it through
And we will all see the truth

Chorus
Open your eyes baby
Open your mind
Tear down the walls of this world

Open your eyes baby
Open your mind
Tear down the walls of this world

Open your eyes now baby
Open your mind
Tear down the walls of this world

Open your eyes baby
Open your mind to your own light
Don’t be afraid just set your sights
And wake up to your paradise
Open your eyes baby
Leave this perfect world behind
Things will finally be set right
All in precious time
